The Rapido 40 offers the benefits of the Rapido 60 - but only requires a single berth in a marina. And, the floats can be folded without barnacles growing on their side, thanks to our new, patented, folding mechanism. True!! *** 21 Nov. 2019, for details of the Sunrise Specials and Lighthouse Guarantee for the Rapido, click onto https://tinyurl.com/vzwprsl *** The Rapido 40 is the World's Ultimate Folding Cruising Trimaran. When the idea to make the Rapido 40 (and 50) a folding trimaran was first suggested, our initial reaction was, "ARE YOU CRAZY??". But after consulting with Pete Melvin from our designers, Morelli & Melvin, we thought, "Why not!". After all, our management team has built more folding trimarans than anyone else in the world and if anyone understands the challenges and how to do it right, we do! It will add a small amount to the initial cost but the ability to park the boat in any marina that accepts monohulls will make it all worthwhile and the payback will be huge! And, with the new folding mechanism so that the floats remain in the upright position, the sides will remain clean. Email paul@rapidotrimarans.com for further information now.
